Ebay: VAT on Postage
by Colette Thomas

There are quite a number of sellers out there who are profiting from postage and packaging charges on Ebay. But before you complain the next time you purchase something on Ebay, bear in mind the hidden costs of postage and packaging – Jiffy bags, bubble wrap and labels do not come for free and more importantly – a VAT registered seller needs to pay VAT to Revenue on the total payment received which includes the cost of postage and packaging (which in a lot of cases will be inclusive of VAT at 21%).  This is due to postage being classed as a service provided to the buyer.  Worse still – there’s no VAT to claim back from the postage the seller buys.
